Abstract : Computers in the architectural and engineering field have been used for many years. Recently, computers have been playing an increasing role in the design process itself through the development of computer aided design systems. The development of interactive computer graphics was a major contributor to the acceptance of the computer in assisting in the design process by the architectural and engineering community. The emphasis is placed on the aspects of computer graphics interactive input devices, the requirement of complete geometric representation of objects and the corresponding data management problem. Computer aided design problems in reference to architectural and engineering design theory is discussed and a brief history of computer aided design with an overview of various systems is presented.
